    No 1 is an interesting shot but I can't work out what the man is doing.

    No 2 is a cracker! Gloucester Cathedral? I've never been there but the thread title is "Local" and you are listed as based in the Cotswolds.

    I love your processing - plenty of contrast and a full range of tones. I wish I could get my B&W work looking like this!

    Gloucester Cathedral is not situated on a street, and its tower has no clock.

    Nice shots. Bit big on my screen, I have to scroll.
    Old man doing execution shooting by the looks of it.:cool:

    Hi Gents,

    The man in the first photo is actually passing a letter to someone in a car but I wanted to crop the car out as it dated the photo.

    I do use Silver Efex pro for converting my images to B&W as for me it is the best B&W conversion software on the market (personal choice).

    The street shot is in Cirencester marketplace.

    Thanks Ian, Cirencester looks an interesting place and if that is "just" a church it sure is an impressive one!

    I did trial Silver Efex a while back and was impressed, but never prioritised it's purchase (so many other things on which to spend so little money!) Maybe I should get it sooner rather than later - not that it will give me results like you get, of course, but it seems like a good starting point.
